The Undiscovered Beautiful Scenery in China

For those nature lovers, you may be amazed and enjoyed with these beautiful pictures taken from a place in south west of Kunming, capital city of Yunnan Province. Because of remoteness and lack of infrastructure, transportation problems and lodging, this place is not listed in the tourist map of China. Even the people living there are not so aware with its existing beauty.

Scenery 1
Here in this place, mountains and hills, every inch of land is cultivated and planted to the maximum by the inhabitants. 

Scenery 2
Along the road are very colorful plantations. Traveling here would mean pleasure of the soul.

Scenery 3
Here and there, white colors prevail...

Scenery 4
Every piece of land of a particular color is like a piece of cloth forming a quilt.

The same wonderful site, added with a cute rainbow...

Scenery 9
The flowers are in bloom...

Scenery 10
As seen from afar, it seems like a landscape painting. The different plantations  on the terraces add colors that make it fascinating to look at. Beauty means even more especially when it is natural.

Scenery 12
This photo shows another kind of plantations forming different shapes or curves.

Scenery 13
Having the nature's color, the site gives the feeling of calmness and a feeling of relief.

Scenery 14
During sunrise when mild dew is present in plants...
I wonder what time of day this looks more alluring. 
I wonder how it looks during sunset...

                                        The clouds add a sophisticated effect of the scene in this photo.

A more detailed description of the place --a group of houses surrounded by so vast farm land.

Scenery 20
This hollowed place is the most distinct part of the land. Later, in order to promote tourism, it was named
Lexiaguo (meaning--- the place where beautiful colors set)

Scenery 21
A town in Lexiaguo.

Scenery 22
                                 The curves in the terraces appears artistically formed.

Scenery  23
                                         Flowers again..so white...so eye-catching.

Scenery 24
Beauty is everywhere... it may be in your surroundings but you are just not aware of it.
Nature is everywhere... and the one surrounding you could be one of the most amazing beauties in the world.
Nature is beauty --a genuine beauty...of course, it's a beauty of art, an art created by God and must be preserved and maintained by us, humans.

Fantastic Revelation of Some Logos

You may wonder how and why are logos made. They are actually for identification. Most of them are made simple but memorable; and despite the simplicity, they convey meaning that is derived from the quality of those which they symbolize. The following logos have revelations in themselves. Scroll down and find out...

Unilever is one of the biggest producers of food, beverages, cleaning agents and personal care products. Their logo is letter U, the initial of the company's name. But it is not as simple as it looks because it took many shapes to form this letter. Each shape speaks something about a particular product offered by the company itself.

Designed by Professor Vaughan Pratt of the Stanford University, the Sun logo is one of the most famous ambigrams in the world. In it, you can read the brand name whether in vertical or horizontal direction.

Have you seen letters N and W? They are inside the circle.
But aside from these letters, you can also see the compass pointing to northwest, another reference to the brandname. Look again...

The logo is a green tree. But it isn't just a mere tree. Looking at its crown, you will notice  that it resembles a brain. It symbolizes the intellectual capabilities of the firm's staff and to underscore their company's name.

What have you seen? Focus at the center. There you can see two persons sharing a piece of Tostito chip with a bowl of salsa. It conveys an idea of people connecting with each other.

Elefont has only letter "e" logo. This actually looks so simple; but try to look at it more closely and you will see a part of an elephant's trunk in its negative space.

The Milwaukee Brewers is a professional baseball team from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. That is why, as you can see, their logo also looks like a baseball glove. But actually they are letters M and B, the initials of the team's name.

Toblerone is a chocolate-company from Bern, Switzerland . Bern is sometimes called The City Of Bears . They have incorporated this idea in the Toblerone logo, because if you look closely, you'll see the silhouette of a bear. 

The NBC (National Broadcasting Company) is one of the biggest American television networks. The logo shows six different tail feathers of a peacock that refer to the six divisions at the time that this logo was created. The peacock's head is flipped to the right to suggest it was looking forward, not back. 

Every letter in this logo is formed number 8. This is simple yet memorable.

At first glance, you will only notice letter F and the red stripes in the logo.
But if you look closely in the negative space between them, you can see number 1.

It's the logo of Carrefour, one of the biggest European retailers and also the French for "crossroads". No wonder why in this logo, there are two arrows in opposite directions and the letter C between them. 

This logo does not only contains letters B and R, 
but also include 31 (in color pink),  reference to the 31 flavors.

Roxy is a company that specializes in clothing and accessories for girls who love snowboarding, surfing. The company is actually a part of Quiksilver (right). The Roxy logo (left) is made of two Quiksilver logos that form a heart. 

This logo also uses a negative space to create the letter H. You can see three different parts: the letter H and W and a whale's tail in blue. 

This logo doesn't seem to hide much at first sight, but it gives you a little insight in the
 philosophy behind the brand. First of all, the yellow swoosh looks like a smile: 
Amazon wants to have the best customer satisfaction. 
The swoosh also connects the letters a and z, meaning that this store has everything from a to z.
